Dragon Prince by Melanie Rawn

I think I have to call it quits on this book.  I’m 228 pages in but haven’t had the interest to pick it up and keep reading it. It’s been sitting on the edge of my desk for weeks now. I don’t think it’s boring or anything but it just seems to go on and on and on and on… Sunrunners and lots of people around… Tons of history being pumped in as well.

It does make me question my own writing style. I can’t sit and dwell on one scene forever. I feel the need to keep the story moving but this book just seems to dwell on so much. This book reminds me of my RPing woes where I can’t turn one scene into four paragraphs. I can’t handle that type of storytelling. I’d rather it’s a “She looked at him with a smile.” instead of a “With her red flowy hair as she craned her soft neck to look at her handsome love, once a boy that she loved playing and skipping in the meadows with, how they declared their love in the same place and yadda yadda yadda, brought a fond smile upon her face with the remembrance of it all.”

Yeah. I have to call it quits on this book. For now at least.
